    I want to hear about the best and most outrageous conspiracy theories you've heard about a player, team, or coach. I don't care if they have any merit, they just have to be interesting.

    My plan that I developed 3 hours ago while bored at work is to formulate this into podcast form. I'll choose a conspiracy theory, do my research (Google it), and present my findings & conclusion in a 15-25 minute podcast.

    I have purchased a microphone from Amazon.com so I'm fully intent on doing this at this point. Comments and suggestions are welcome.

    -Michael Jordan's dad was murdered due to MJ's unpaid gambling debts

    -MJ "retired" the first time to serve a gambling-related suspension. It was never announced so as to not ruin the NBA

    Cal Ripken got into a fight with Kevin Costner and wasn't able to play one night for the Orioles so they faked a power outage to delay the game and save his streak.

    The NFL deleted and destroyed tapes the Patriots handed over during Spygate that showed they had cheated to beat the Rams in the Super Bowl.

    NBA rigged two draft lotteries to compensate Cleveland for the loss of LeBron.

    I am sure this is all sour grapes but had lots of friends on the old Dungy Bucs staff and they all swore the 99 NFC title game was rigged for the Rams.

    That overturn was horrendous.

    If the gambling stuff was true it would be easy to see why they'd try to keep it quiet. That would have been like the worst thing that could happen to the NBA

    Kerry Rhodes being "blackballed" from the NFL. Rumor is he's gay.

    Maybe not pro sports but Sting was on standby at the 1996 bash at the beach to be the third man in the nwo had Hogan backed out at the last second.

    The Crosby draft lottery after the lockout year that made it so the NHL could make up new rules for a lottery and they happened to make rules that two struggling large market franchises in NY and Pitt were 2 of the 4 teams with the best odds at winning

    he was absolutely a coke head in college.

    If he had 1 super bowl, it wouldn't even be a question. Marino put up modern era passing numbers in a league that let DBs get away with pretty much everything. He is absolutely a top 10 QB of all time
